[size="3"][u][b]Presidential Address brings announcements[/b][/u][/size]


Today as she came to the end of a Presidential Address at the Presidential Palace in Yakutsk, President Anna Petrov gave five announcements:

She first announced the permanent full closure of the Sea of Okhotsk to any non treaty partners and turning of the area outside the coastal waters of the mainland, Sakhalin and the Kurile Islands into a military zone.

The second announcement was the total closure of the Buryatian portion of the Laptev Sea but failed to specify the reason for its closure.

Her third announcement was the creation of the Buryatia Nuclear Council which would strive to make Buryatia fully reliant on nuclear power in five years.

She then announced the intention of pumping money into the exporting of Buryatian goods and services.

Then lastly she announced her intention to sign more economic treaties with other powers, though she would not when questioned reveal which nations she would ask.

She then left the podium, leaving more questions than there were answers. The internet in Buryatia buzzed as bloggers debated about which nations she would ask for the treaties and what the sea closures meant for the region. Whatever happens she has left a lot of people wondering what her next move will be.

[size="3"][u][b]Sakhalin declared secure[/b][/u][/size]

Finally several weeks after the end of the BLF insurgency, Sakhalin has been declared secure and safe for tourism again. Some security restrictions are still in place with some areas of the island being off limits due to the clearing of unexploded bombs.

However the Buryatian Military still maintains a significant presence despite the end of the insurgency, with some opponents in the Buryatian Senate calling for the military to scale down its presence and allow the island to return to normal.

A massive economic collapse has triggered severe civil unrest in the nation just hours before an economic ballout would have delayed the collapse. The Buryatian military is currently protecting the Capital Yakutsk and major facilities throughout the country. Massive riots in Yakutsk have the police forces there struggling to cope. Many are feared dead in the clashes and President Anna Petrov has reportedly asked the Serene Republic of Vaule to aid the stricken country. It is also expected that Buryatia may become a protectorate of Vaule once again to prevent civil unrest.
